The e-commerce.

osCommerce new installation


Recommended Posts

I installed osCommerce in my webserver. So now when I go to "http://servername/OnlineShop" it shows me default setup of osCommerce Online Merchant.

After it I downloaded osCommerce 2.2 Milestone 2 Documentation. In the 5-th page of this documentation there is a section of "New Installation". It says me

"Upload the catalog folder which includes the admin folder to your document root (public_html, www, htdocs) using FTP."


As I do not have catalog folder in my fileserver I made it.Now when I start new installation directly in the first page it asks me to write Database Server, Username, Password and Database Name. Here I do not know what to do. I already created database and username and gave to this user full control over this database.Now when I write this information system do not receive it.


I know that it is very simple problem. Anyway I can not solve it. Please, help me

The catalog folder is available in oscommerce-2.2rca folder which you had downloaded from oscommerce website.

Enter the database server name (like db1.myserver.com or an IP address), username , password and database name which you had created earlier.

I hope this will be helpful.
